ttt

Time for the weekly meme hosted by Broke and the Bookish once again, this week, in the spirit of the season, we have been asked to list our top ten Halloween-esque recommendations!

Mine are all books I have read and recommend, and I split them into three categories: Horror, Paranormal and Suspense. I don’t read much “horror” so I was pretty limited from what I have read, but I think it is a decent list 🙂

Yes it is tuesday, which tends to mean “Top Ten Tuesday” on this blog, but I honestly cannot think of 10 bookish bucket list things apart from “attend more book events” since I’ve only actually ever been to one (last year!). So in light of that: straight on to my next review!

Reese can’t remember anything from the time between the accident and the day she woke up almost a month later. She only knows one thing: She’s different now.

Across North America, flocks of birds hurl themselves into airplanes, causing at least a dozen to crash. Thousands of people die. Fearing terrorism, the United States government grounds all flights, and millions of travelers are stranded.

Reese and her debate team partner and longtime crush David are in Arizona when it happens. Everyone knows the world will never be the same. On their drive home to San Francisco, along a stretch of empty highway at night in the middle of Nevada, a bird flies into their headlights. The car flips over. When they wake up in a military hospital, the doctor won’t tell them what happened, where they are—or how they’ve been miraculously healed.

Things become even stranger when Reese returns home. San Francisco feels like a different place with police enforcing curfew, hazmat teams collecting dead birds, and a strange presence that seems to be following her. When Reese unexpectedly collides with the beautiful Amber Gray, her search for the truth is forced in an entirely new direction—and threatens to expose a vast global conspiracy that the government has worked for decades to keep secret (Goodreads 2014)

Eleven minutes passed before Delaney Maxwell was pulled from the icy waters of a Maine lake by her best friend Decker Phillips. By then her heart had stopped beating. Her brain had stopped working. She was dead. And yet she somehow defied medical precedent to come back seemingly fine. Everyone wants Delaney to be all right, but she knows she’s far from normal. Pulled by strange sensations she can’t control or explain, Delaney finds herself drawn to the dying. Is her altered brain now predicting death, or causing it?

Then Delaney meets Troy Varga, who recently emerged from a coma with similar abilities. At first she’s reassured to find someone who understands the strangeness of her new existence, but Delaney soon discovers that Troy’s motives aren’t quite what she thought. Is their gift a miracle, a freak of nature-or something much more frightening? (Goodreads 2014)

An ordinary town . . . full of deadly secrets

Strange things have been happening in sixteen-year-old Maya’s small Vancouver Island community–from the mountain lions that have been constantly approaching her to her best friend’s hidden talent for “feeling” out people and situations.
